YouTube user Salomondrin hasn’t been having any problems posting videos of the BlackBerry Storm 2, while other users are seeing their videos ripped down by RIM’s legal department. Why? Probably because it’s good press. He does a good job of selling users on the Storm 2, and in the end it’s good for business. I’d like to see Salomondrin post something highly critical of the Storm 2, and see if he can keep the video up.
Sal gives the following 6 reasons why you should get the BlackBerry Storm 2:
1. The Storm 2 is better looking.
3. Memory – Storm 2 has 138 MB of application memory and 1.8 GB on device.
4. Texting – the texting experience is much faster due to the new sensors underneath the screen.
5. Faster – Even though Sal is using a device with an older OS, it’s still much faster to browse through the menu options and go from landscape to portrait mode.
6. Better Camera
While having more memory, a better camera and a faster processor is great, it is still very close to the Storm 1. There doesn’t seem to be anything revolutionary going on with the device, and I think with more OS updates to the Storm 1, you could have a very similar experience.
Carriers everywhere are dumping the Storm 1 to make inventory room for the Storm 2, but they’re going to have to do a lot to sell us on the Storm 2. Your BlackBerry Storm is a very decent device, I’m just not seeing the great leap forward. Lets see what marketing has to say about this.
